Reflections of the Heart by Sally Laity
Christian romance. A young idealistic girl struggles to adjust to life after she and her father return from an extended missionary assignment, during which her mother passed. She meets an artist who prefers to be alone, and through sheer annoying persistence (which is always far more charming in fiction than real life) works herself into his life, and uncovers his collection of emotional issues. Fear not, there is always a happy ending.
